2 x Christmas78,000 parcels for 2 x Christmas
78,000 parcels were collected during the 16th 2 x Christmas campaign. The goods donated are distributed to needy people in Switzerland via the cantonal associations of the Swiss Red Cross. In collaboration with the national Red Cross associations, some are also distributed to families and social institutions in Moldavia, Romania, Belarus and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
2 x Christmas is a charitable campaign supported jointly by the Swiss Red Cross (SRC), SRG SSR and Swiss Post. Over the Christmas period, people donate food and day-to-day necessities. Swiss Post transports these free of charge to the SRC logistics centre in Wabern (Berne), where they are sorted and forwarded to those in need by Swiss Post employees and SRC volunteers.
The 17th 2 x Christmas will take place between 24 December 2013 and 11 January 2014.
